Tete is the capital city of Tete Province in Mozambique. It has a population of 104,832 (1997 census). It is located on the Zambezi River, and is the site of the one-kilometre-long Tete Suspension Bridge, built under the Portuguese rule of Mozambique and designed by Edgar Cardoso, a vital link on the major highway linking not just northern and southern parts of the country, but Zimbabwe and Malawi as well. This bridge and the Dona Ana Bridge downstream will soon be joined by a new bridge at Caia as the only bridges across the lower Zambezi.
An important Swahili trade centre before the colonial era, Tete continues to dominate the centre-west part of the country and region, and is the largest city on the Zambezi.
Chingodzi Airport on the north-east side of the city has a 2.4 km paved runway. Tete is also the terminus of the Moatize branch of the Mozambican Railways on the north bank of the river.
